Lexington, Mass. — January 12, 2015— Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR) today announced that it expects its fourth quarter 2014 revenue to exceed the upper end of its previously announced guidance range of $26 to $27 million. During the quarter, the company continued to invest in sales and marketing, and in the development of new solutions that will leverage Imprivata’s authentication platform and drive long-term growth.
As the Company has not completed its quarter and year-end fiscal close and the audit of its 2014 financial statements is not complete, the revenue expectations presented in this press release are preliminary, and, therefore, subject to final year-end closing adjustments and may change. The preliminary financial results presented in this release are based solely upon information available as of the date of this release, are not a comprehensive statement of our financial results or positions as of or for the 2014 fiscal year, and have not been audited, reviewed, or compiled by our independent registered accounting firm. The Company expects to issue full 2014 financial results and 2015 guidance during its quarterly conference call in late February 2015.
The Company provided updated guidance in advance of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, where President and Chief Executive Officer Omar Hussain and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Kalowski will present at 3:30 p.m. PST on Wednesday, January 14, 2015. A live webcast of the presentation will be available online from the investor relations page of the Company's corporate website at www.imprivata.com.
